Tangled by Emma Chase ~ Review

By Emma Chase

Drew Evans is handsome and arrogant, he makes multimillion dollar business deals and seduces New York’s most beautiful women with just a smile. So why has he been shuttered in his apartment for seven days, miserable and depressed? He’ll tell you he has the flu. But we all know that’s not really true.

Katherine Brooks is brilliant, beautiful and ambitious. When Kate is hired as the new associate at Drew’s father’s investment banking firm, every aspect of the dashing playboy’s life is thrown into a tailspin. The professional competition she brings is unnerving, his attraction to her is distracting, his failure to entice her into his bed is exasperating.

Tangled is not your mother’s romance novel. It is an outrageous, passionate, witty narrative about a man who knows a lot about women…just not as much as he thinks. As he tells his story, Drew learns the one thing he never wanted in life, is the only thing he can’t live without.


It’s been a while since I read Tangled, and the one scene that pops out at me is when Drew gets nailed in the eye with the olive. I seriously busted out laughing. There are tons of funny moments in this book. If Tangled were a movie not of the Disney variety, it would be a RomCom, but actually funny.

Told from the perspective of ladies’ man Drew. He has it all; the career, the money, the car, the women, the friends, and a niece he adores. His niece is the only female he willingly keeps around, and I’m pretty sure it’s because he could give her back. Drew is a man who gets what he wants until he meets a gorgeous brunette in a bar and she turns him down flat. Then karma decides to give him one hell of a case of payback.

Kate, on the other hand, has been a good girl. She’s worked hard to get her MBA and her fiancée is a guy she’s known since she was a kid. She has a sense of right and wrong, and she isn’t going to back down without a fight. When the gauntlet is thrown down, Kate gives as good as she gets.

I was impressed with Ms. Chase’s debut novel. It was downright hilarious and kept me entertained all the way through. Drew and Kate’s escapades are limitless when it comes to one upping each other. Sometimes you just have to create a reason to stay away from the person you can’t, or should I say, shouldn’t have.
